The SDE 2.1 Tool was developed by FEMA to assist State & local officials in determining substantial damage for residential & non-residential structures in accordance with a local floodplain management ordinance meeting the requirements of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). The tool can be used to assess flood, wind, wildfire, seismic, & other forms of damage. It helps communities provide timely substantial damage determinations so that reconstruction can begin following a disaster.

General Guidance for Installation & Use of SDE 2.1

- Export any existing SDE data that you want saved from previous SDE versions.
- Uninstall all previous versions of SDE from the host computer.

Note: The new depreciation methodology will only work in SDE 2.1. Any assessments developed in previous SDE versions and imported into SDE 2.1 will retain their original depreciation values.

The Substantial Damage Estimator Best Practices was developed to provide suggested approaches for dealing with some of the challenging situations users may encounter while using the SDE Tool. To download this publication, visit http://www.fema.gov/media-library/assets/documents/26753
